Hi I'm Diane

I'm a Mormon. I'm a mom and a grandma. I'm a elementary school teacher. I'm a swimmer and a singer.

About Me

Every morning I enjoy getting up and going to water aerobics class. I really like breakfast. I have a list of books I want to read that is about a block long! I enjoy reading. My grandchildren are the joy of my life, along with their parents. Buying toys, books and clothes for my kids and grandkids keeps me busy. Volunteering in the community is a great thing to do. Many of the organizations that help children are on my radar. Mentoring Elementary age kids is a joy as well. After many years, I am trying my hand at handiwork; quilting, crocheting and other types of stitching are enticing to me now. My friends are an important part of my life and I enjoy doing activities with them. My garden is beautiful and takes a lot of work. I love to see the colors of summer and fall.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the most important thing in my life. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I am eternally grateful for His infinite sacrifice made for me. Activity in the Church enriches my life. I have taught Seminary (early morning scripture classes for teenagers) has enabled me to study the Gospel each day. I have grown in my love for the scriptures, the Prophets and Apostles. When I read about those who have sacrificed much to help us attain the knowledge and understanding, I am appreciative beyond description. The Prophets and Apostles have become my friends even though I have not been able to know them personally. I'm grateful for a Living Prophet in President Thomas S. Monson to guide us in the Savior's footsteps. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ all my life and have fond great joy in service in the Kingdom of God.

How I live my faith

Children have always been important in my life. I was raised in a family where both my parents were happy to be parents and we did many things together as a family. When I went to college, my greatest desire was to become a teacher. I taught school for some years before beginning to raise my own family. Enjoying our opportunity to work and play together as a family has blessed my life and theirs. As my children now raise their own families I am grateful for the foundation of the importance of families that has been so much of my life. I love participating in the community and have been involved in tutoring and mentoring children. I am involved with several organizations in my community that serve the needs of children. I have taught the youth in my area for many years and cherish the relationships that have been formed. In taking classes in the community I have developed great friendships. I am active in my homeowner's association, and have found another place where I can meet and serve with neighbors.
